Hundreds of meals given away at pet-food pantry in Chinatown

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- There have been many food giveaways for families in need since the coronavirus pandemic began -- but pets have to eat too.

On Saturday, "Michelson Found Animals" hosted a free pet-food pantry.

More than a thousand meals for dogs and cats were distributed at Homeboy Industries headquarters in Chinatown.

One goal of Saturday's event was to reduce the number pets being surrendered to shelters.

More than two-thirds of Angelenos are pet owners.
